Share Your Story with a First Year Student

Career, Academic and Alumni Services is organizing its annual mentoring program for first-year students. The program provides the opportunity to meet alumni and talk about their careers in a one-on-one setting or, if appropriate, observe a portion of an attorney’s day. Because each participating first-year student is matched with an attorney according to his or her field or employer of interest, we encourage as many of our alumni as possible to volunteer for this program so that we can make appropriate matches. We will be matching students and mentors before the semester break.

All attorney-volunteers and students are encouraged to attend a meet-and-greet breakfast at the law school on January 14, 2015. At the breakfast, you can schedule a convenient date for a future one-on-one meeting. If you are unable to attend the breakfast, you can coordinate another mutually convenient time to meet with the student. To volunteer for this program, register online.

If you have any questions about the program, feel free to contact Dana Fallon, ’99 at 703-993-9862 or Ilissa Belanger at 703-993-8001.
